I came from a '99 Accord to this car. You will read reviews about "been an honda guy my entire life...." and stuff like that, well that was me. I got the S model in a 6 speed manual. This car is great! I have been driving it for about 3 months and I have few complaints. Pros: Response is great! Grip is going to depend on your tires. I like the sharp looking allow wheel on the S option more than the SE steel option. The road noise is significantly REDUCED in this car. Seriously, I had to learn how to feel the RPMs in the clutch vs the sound of the engine for a bit. It was misleading. The ride is much more comfortable. The standard packages of traction control, ABS, and yaw control are great! The car has great pick up and red lines at 7500 (pretty good for a 4 cylinder). The trunk is very spacious. The backseat has a great degree of comfort even after 5 hours of sitting there. If you are one that likes to coast to feel better about your gas millage, this thing coasts FOREVER. The 6 speed manual gearing is great and the shifting is very seamless. It glides in and out of the gears. 2nd gear took a bit to get used to, but that just getting used to it. Great on gas! 35 highway. Avg = 28 CONS: Little things, I wish the arm rest in the back seat had access to the truck. The entire backseat does come down in 1/3 and 2/3 sections. I just wanted an option where it could be a small access point. The fuel cap is by far my biggest complaint. It has this "no-cap" system where there are two spring flaps that have to be pushed outward to release the metal door into the tank. One - it makes putting fuel injector fluid in a much more difficult task. Two - I like putting a locking cap on my gas with it being over $4 a gallon. The last con is I could use a little more space in front of the shifter, but oh well. Other thoughts: This vehicle is more heavy (at least it feels like) than the Accord. I was looking at Accord, Mazda6's, and Fusions. For the price range I was looking, it was among 2008 Accord, 2010 Fusion or 2010 Mazda6. The Mazda6 has a smaller backseat area and lower roof. The Accord didn't have a 6 speed manual (5 speed) and they have braking and handling issues. Fusion retains it's value very well for a good reason.

I have purchased several new Ford Trucks but have never cared for Ford cars. This is the first. I was sold on the Fusion the first time I drove it. I did a lot of research at the local garages and learned that there are vitually no issues with the car. It has awesome fuel economy and is very quiet.

A lot of value for my money!

by from Columbia City, IN on May 8, 2012

Picked up a used 2010 SEL with the 2.5 and 6 speed auto, right at 36000 miles. Leather, moon & tune, and SYNC. Getting right at 29 mpg in mixed driving, 50/50 between 70 mph on the highway to 45 or so...
Picked up a used 2010 SEL with the 2.5 and 6 speed auto, right at 36000 miles. Leather, moon & tune, and SYNC. Getting right at 29 mpg in mixed driving, 50/50 between 70 mph on the highway to 45 or so on Indiana's backroads. Car is amazingly quiet inside, very comfortable seats for average build guy (5'9" & 170 #). Hauls me, my wife, & our two boys comfortably, even with booster seats. Lots of storage space inside and in the trunk. Love it all around, don't see any reason it won't give me at least 100k miles of faithful service!

I purchased my 2010 Fusion as a used car with 26K miles on it. I absolutely love the car, its features and styling. The 4 cyl engine provides good acceleration and the fact I can play my ipod through the sound system and use my cell phone hands free through the sound system is GREAT.

Very impressed from the first drive, this car is not the "appliances" that Camrys and Accords are. It enitces you to push it a little and drive it instead of it driving you. The SYNC System is INCREDIBLE. Adult Bike fits in trunk with 1 seat down. Incredibly quiet inside, even when lighting up the tires.

Have owned a 6 cylinder 2010 Ford Fusion for 2 months. I am very happy with it so far. It runs great, has all the bells and whistles. Can't believe the pep that this car has. Only negative is that you feel the bumps on en uneven road. My 2 boys are grown. They say that there is plenty of room in the back. Love the sound system. The lighted cup holders are impressive. Trunk is roomy-holds 4 sets of golf clubs. So far-so good!

I have had my car a few months and so far I am very pleased with the purchase. I feel like I got a lot of car for the money. The features like SYNC work great if you plan on using an ipod and the bluetooth feature is very helpful. I have the 4cyl 6 speed and it is a ton of fun. I would recommend it over the V6 automatic any day. Currently I am getting about 24 mpg as an average. That is with a good mix of highway/city driving. With about 2 hours of constant highway driving it gets as high as 30 mpg. The car feels safe and rides nice, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a car under 18,000 that feels like a higher end sedan.

HAD THIS CAR TWO YEARS AND IT WAS A GEM. IT NEVER SAW THE DEALER EXCEPT FOR LOF. GOT 34 MPG ON TRIPS AND 22+ IN TOWN. VERY COMFORTABLE ONCE IN. I AM 6'2" 175 AND IT WAS A BIT HARD TO ENTER, BUT ONCE IN IT WAS GREAT. THE 4 BANGER HAD PLENTY OF POWER AND GOT GREAT MILEAGE. I HAD ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES ON IT AND IT STILL PERFORMED VERY WELL. A LOT OF ZIP FOR A 4. TRADED IT IN ON A 4X4 AND I REGRET IT AS I NOW GET 27 MPH WITH MY NEW ESCAPE HYBRID. BUT I HOPE TO BE HAPPY AGAIN WHEN THE SNOW FINALLY DOES FLY.

My 2010 Ford Fusion seems to me to be a highly sophisticated vehicle. It has a backup camera with excellent clairity, a Microsoft SYNC system, a "blind spot information system"which lets you know when another car is passing you and is in your 'blind spot". Of course, heated wleaher seats and alloy wheels do a lot to make the car exceptional, as does the "tuxedo black" color.

This is by far the nicest car we have ever owned. Granted, the wife and I don't have the funds for the super fancy but we love it. In 2006 we bought a FORD Escape Hybrid. The Escape gave us 95,000 painless miles, so buying the Fusion Hybrid was a no brainer. (Daughter came of age and now drives the Escape). We appreciated the great milage we were getting from the Escape because of all the "Momma Miles" that go with having children. We average about 430 miles per tank on regular unleaded in the Escape with a 15 gallon tank. Ok, back to the Fusion. We got ours with the SYNC and it's basically loaded. It has a suprising amount of get up and go from the Escape. It pulls like there is a V6 under the hood but has the same engine as the escape. The technology gain between the two vehicles is very appearant. We now have about 22,000 on the Fusion and it has been trouble free. We have been averaging about 600+ per tank on regular unleaded. The Fusion holds 17.5 gallons. On the road it is quiet and gobbles up road bumps with ease. It is very smooth and has extremely responsive brakes. All in all, the vehicle is very inter-active with the driver. The SYNC system with your smart phone is incredible too!! SYNC is a whole different topic though. One of the coolest things FORD has changed from the Escape to the Fusion is the A/C system. The compressor is now driven electrically, meaning the engine does not have to be running to have it on. And it is a much colder system. You can hang meat in the Fusion!! Anyway, I would recommend this car to anyone, as I have already done so. I have absolutely NO regrets with this purchase.
